Reliable sources maintain that this 1980 film by Helma Sanders-Brahms was one of the finest to emerge from the new German cinema of that period. Eva Mattes stars as a young woman left alone with her daughter when her husband is called to the front in 1939; in order to survive the mounting devastation, she must make her way across the war-torn country, and by the time she’s reunited with her husband she’s outgrown him. In German with subtitles.
